I recently was sent this link ( http://www.l1011.homestead.com/TransAtlantic-Airlines.html ) about Trans Atlantic Airlines getting a DL L-1011 from VCV for operations. ("Plans include operating six L1011's re-registered to TransAtlantic airlines from JFK to destinations in West Africa. An additional two L1011’s were also acquired for parts planes for a total of eight L1011's.")
I did some search on the online, and found these sites:
These two sites indicate that the airline had ceremonies in mid-2003 and had plans to acquire A330s for their operations, and:
"We have scheduled Two flights (KC 510) to take off thrice weekly (every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday) from New York (JFK) and Baltimore respectively. The flights (KC510) will return every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday respectively.
The route will be JFK-Banjul-Lagos, and Baltimore-Dakar-Freetown-Lagos. Soon we will be adding a Houston-Freetown-Lagos route." ( http://www.africanevents.com/InterviewwithChiefNjoku.htm )
As far as I know, no flights happened in 2003 and no A330s were acquired. Does anyone have any more information about Trans Atlantic Airlines?
